Baltic Amber and Succinic Acid

It is a kind of amber found in the Baltic region, where scientists speculate that massive forests from 40 million years ago provided a large amount of amber deposits around the Baltic sea.

A unique feature of Baltic amber is the presence of succinic acid, which is renowned for its ability to alleviate pain and increase healing. Aside from dissolving amber in a solution to ingest in the body, it’s also possible for succinic acid to be absorbed by the skin, giving comfort and speeding up the healing process in the body tissues.

 

Teething

Giving babies who are starting to grow their teeth Baltic amber helps in lowering the pains of teething, the swelling and itching as teeth break through the gums leads to crying and sleepless nights. Amber necklace around their necks would let the succinic acid to be absorbed and soothe the muscles and gums, and provide healing effects around the growing teeth.
